Under plans to extend the amount of information available to police, local authorities will not be able to get any of the new powers under the draft Communications Bill.
Local authorities will also be stripped of their powers under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 to access data relating to phone calls, such as the subscriber's name.
They will be able to apply to Parliament to have these powers reinstated at a later date, but will be barred from accessing the new powers related to emails and internet use.
Public bodies will not automatically get access to the new powers, but will be able to apply for them at a later date.
